According to Warscher- “This photo was taken in the period (if I am not mistaken in 1927), when the modern trabeation was missing. 
In the time of Overbeck-Mau the first reconstruction of the trabeation existed (see Overbeck-Mau, p.299).
See Warscher, T. Codex Topographicus Pompeianus, IX.1. (1943), Swedish Institute, Rome. (no.85), p. 156.

According to Warscher – “Nothing remains of the pictures on the east wall. Instead there are painted traces on the north wall: architectural motives, that is a trabeation in the centre, and Cupids in the side panels. These Cupids are omitted by Helbig.”
See Warscher, T. Codex Topographicus Pompeianus, IX.1. (1943), Swedish Institute, Rome. (no.90), p. 164.

IX.1.20 Pompeii. December 2007. Room 6, household shrine in ala on east side. According to the description from Boyce, the base was covered with stucco and painted in imitation of red and yellow marble.
Around the top of the base ran a red stripe. In the centre of the front was embedded a white marble slab with the inscription, below.
The lararium painting was done on the white background of the room walls, on both sides of the aedicula. On the right side, two male figures, each clad in a long white garment like the toga, stood beside an altar.
On the left of the aedicula three men lead a bull to sacrifice; one leading the animal by a rope, the other two held him. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.79-80)
